David Green is the brain behind The Reverse Sweep blog (www.thereversesweep.com), which is intended to offer an irreverent and acerbic opinion on the wonderful game of cricket. Since first seeing David Gower hit a glorious and effortless cover drive as a small boy, David has been hooked on the great game. As a useful schoolboy and club cricketer, he harboured wistful dreams of emulating Douglas Jardine in captaining England to Ashes victory in Australia and annoying the locals into the bargain. But alas, England’s loss was literature’s gain as David wasn’t quite talented enough and had to settle for the next best thing of watching, writing and blogging about cricket. Having relocated to France with his young family, David is also trying to get the locals interested in the great game with little success to date. David will be writing as a guest blogger for HoldingWilley during the World T20 and will be paying particular attention to the fortunes of the England team. As well as his blog, you can follow David on Twitter @TheReverseSweep.
